Movie review by Louie Baharom (lou)
Following the success of Bliss, TBA Studios proves once again that they’re the premier film distributor of cinematic pieces that take great effort in revitalizing the industry.
“Bar Boys,” a feel-good barkada movie starring heartthrobs Rocco Nacino, Carlo Aquino, Enzo Pineda and Kean Cipriano, presents the real lives of law students in the Philippines.
Between the battling forces of the gunslinger (Idris Elba) and the man in black (Matthew McConaughey) comes Jake (Tom Taylor), a young boy from our world who could tip the balance either way, in Columbia Pictures’ new action thriller The Dark Tower (in Philippine cinemas August 30, 2017).
In Textopolis, every face emoji has one expression and one expression only. But Gene doesn’t have just one expression, he has EVERY expression!
In New Line Cinema’s Annabelle: Creation, the mysterious doll was created out of love—a father’s love for his daughter. As a result, the filmmakers centered the foundation of Annabelle’s sinister nature on the ultimate tragedy, the loss of a child, and just how far parents would go to assuage their grief.

Annabelle: Creation services more than it apologizes for the terrible mistakes committed by its forgettable, vapid predecessor.
From the filmmakers behind American Gangster and Edge of Tomorrow comes Universal Pictures’ American Made, the international escapade based on the outrageous (and real) exploits of a hustler and pilot unexpectedly recruited by the CIA to run one of the biggest covert operations in U.S. History.
Smuggler. Informant. Patriot. One of the wealthiest men in 1980s America is someone you’ve never heard of. With his devilish swagger and zest for life, TWA pilot Barry Seal (Cruise) is the hero of his sleepy Southern town. Much to the surprise of his wife, Lucy (Sarah Wright Olsen), the charming entrepreneur has gone from a well-respected TWA pilot to a key figure in one of the greatest scandals in modern history. Little could they grasp that what started out as transporting contraband would lead to Barry’s help in building an army and funding a war.
Once the hotshot airman gets caught up in a shadowy division of the government—running crates of AK-47s and kilos of cocaine—he makes a fortune as a key player in the Iran-contra affair. From trading arms for hostages to training forces of Central and South American kingpins, Barry becomes an improbable hero working against the system. So, how does he sleep at night? It’s all legal if you do it for the good guys.
Based on a true story, American Made co-stars Domhnall Gleeson (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) as CIA operative Monty Schafer, Barry’s point man in the bureau; E. Roger Mitchell as FBI special agent Craig McCall; Jesse Plemons (Bridge of Spies) as Mena, Arkansas, Sheriff Downing, who is more than slightly suspicious of Barry’s side-gig; Lola Kirke (Gone Girl) as Judy Downing, the sheriff’s wife; Alejandro Edda as Jorge Ochoa, Colombian grand drug trafficker; Benito Martinez (Netflix’s House of Cards) as James Rangel, the head of the DEA; Mauricio Mejia (TV’s Narcos) as Medellín narco-terrorist Pablo Escobar; Caleb Landry Jones (Get Out) as JB, Lucy’s manipulative younger brother; and Jayma Mays (TV’s Glee) as attorney Dana Sibota, who is out to lock Barry up for good.
The film is directed by Doug Liman (Edge of Tomorrow) from a screenplay by Gary Spinelli and is produced by Imagine Entertainment’s Academy Award®-winning producer Brian Grazer (A Beautiful Mind, American Gangster).
Opening across the Philippines on Sept. 13, 2017, American Made is distributed by United International Pictures through Columbia Pictures.
